Like most artists, Miranda Lewis’s passion began long before her formal education. Inspired by myths dreams and nature, she sees her art as a vessel of communication – and realizing at a young age she had both the vision and technical skill, she attended Middle Tennessee State University in order to nourish them. There she attained ,with honors, a BFA with a focus in painting, ceramics, art history, paper making, and book arts. With new discipline and tools, and the unyielding need to create, Miranda relocated to immerse herself into Austin, where she joined the live art scene and became a founding member of the Third Coast Visions Collective. Miranda continues to strive for more opportunities to connect with the local visionary artist community in Austin and beyond.
